Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied have reportedly split, the news coming after Portman spent their 11th wedding anniversary without her wedding ring last week.

The duo went their separate ways following Millipied’s reported extramarital affair earlier this year, according to Us Weekly.

“After news of his affair came out, they’ve been trying to work on their marriage but are currently on the outs,” a source told the magazine.

On Friday, Portman’s 11th wedding anniversary with Millepied, the Oscar winner was spotted attending an Agency City FC event in Sydney, Australia, with no wedding ring on her finger, Us adds.

Portman, 42, and Millepied, 46, met on the set of her 2010 film “Black Swan,” as Millepied — a former principal dancer for the New York City Ballet — taught his future wife ballet techniques, People reports.

“It was definitely exciting and fun,” Portman said in a 2018 SiriusXM Town Hall interview. “It was beautiful. … I really got to know him and that was when it seemed like, ‘Oh, right, this is the person.’”

The duo announced their engagement in 2010 and welcomed their first child, Aleph, the following year. They tied the knot in 2012 and added a second child, Amalia, to the mix in 2017. Millepied was Portman’s choreographer again for her 2018 film “Vox Lux.”

On August 4 of last year, Portman honored her husband with a loving Instagram post. “Ten years today @benjaminmillepied, and it keeps getting better…” she wrote at the time.

This June, however, came reports that Millepied had cheated on Portman with a younger woman. A source told Us Weekly at the time that Portman believed the reported affair “was a brief and stupid liaison that means nothing to him” and was “willing to see if she’s capable of rebuilding her trust.”

Similarly, a source told People at the time that Millipied’s reported entanglement “was short-lived and it is over.”
